I haven’t posted much on this blog about assistive technology, probably because I don’t use much myself. I am, however, an enthusiastic user of Apple products, and I’ve been somewhat aware of Apple’s incorporation of accessibility features into its operating systems in the last 10 or so years. There are two people I used to work with, both legally blind, who bought iPads and became total converts, but I don’t remember having heard much from other disabled people on their actual experience using the latest “smart phone” and “tablet” devices.
The apps and features look fantastic. What is the real-life verdict?
Disability life, ideas, identity, culture, commentary, and politics.
